This show was much more than what anyone had expected
I think the best word to describe this episode is "decent".
So overall, this episode was just alot of skating, but it still made you feel the tension, and anxiety, that the characters felt.
While 2016 was definitely a terrible year, in most aspects, we at least got some good anime out of the deal.
It is through the actions, not words, of the characters, whether it be a kiss, training, exchanging rings or loving gazes, that proves how much these characters unconditionally love each other.
I do think it is a great example of how far both Yuri and Yurio have come, but at the same time, nothing much else happens.
While I know some people are upset by the lack of a real fight between Yuri and Yurio, I feel they also wanted to show more character growth between the two characters.
